An oasis tucked into the desert, this Southwestern-style home has everything the owners could ever want: a covered patio, a full-sized pool and a lounge area for sunbathing. Tall cacti layer the landscape, too, for a touch of greenery.
Walls of windows not only fill the great room with natural light, but also provide clear views of the entire backyard. In turn, the owners can enjoy their outdoor space no matter what the weather's like.
Light wood deck combines with stone patio and stairs around a nature-inspired waterfall that mixes large boulders with soft greenery. Contemporary pendant lights hang above the outdoor kitchen area, which makes the outdoor space perfect for entertaining.
The master bath in this modern style Austin home offers a private outdoor space that feels like a hidden sauna. Two outdoor chairs offer seating with a private fence and view to the soaking tub through a large glass window.
This Bend, Oregon home features incredible architectural detail and stunning design. The glass wall in the hallway visually divides the indoor-outdoor space, while the modern concrete flooring and accent stones appear as if the space continues onto the patio.
The strong architectural forms of this lakeside modern are the backdrop for several new outdoor spaces, such as a Zen garden, swimming pool, and entry courtyard that all compliment the house by using like materials and extending the forms into the landscape.
Designed to entertain, this outdoor space was maximized to create an extension of the home. The open pavilion boasts a comfortable seating area, gas fireplace, outdoor TVs and state-of-the-art sound system. Grass is planted between stone tile to add softness to the hardscaping.
Custom hand-carved stone statues add an artistic element to this outdoor space with swimming pool. A decorative concrete staining technique using acid chemical stains tints the concrete plinths and nearby fire bowls to match the look of the aged statue fountains. Black iridescent glass with charcoal gray grout surrounds the spa that spills into channels and back to pool.
